Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is taught at InsightLA under the guidance of Christiane Wolf, MD, PhD . Christiane studied with Jon Kabat-Zinn at UMass and has become a fully certified senior MBSR teacher and an MBSR teacher trainer accredited by the UMass Center for Mindfulness, (the ?mothership? of MBSR.) This course was developed based on the teachings of Jon Kabat-Zinn who spearheaded the scientifically-researched program at University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMASS) in 1979. This coursework is offered by Christiane and several other seasoned MBSR teachers, most of whom are certified by the University of Massachusetts Center for Mindfulness. All of our teachers have decades of meditation practice and study and between them have taught well over 2000 participants in this seminal 8-Week curriculum. This course is offered to both experienced and beginner levels of meditation practice as well as any professional in need of continuing education (CE) credits + certification. Additionally, InsightLA offers assistance and support of its MBSR program alumni by providing access to sitting groups, daylong events and follow-up instruction.
Benefits of MBSR

Many participants report they?re better able to manage stress, fear, anger, anxiety & depression both at home and in the workplace. Often, people report a decrease in visits to their doctor or length of medical stays in a hospital, as well as a decrease in prescription and non-prescription drug-use.
